dc.description.abstract This paper uses Lie symmetry methods to calculate certain expectations for a large class of Itô diffusions. We show that if the problem has sufficient symmetry, then the problem of computing functionals of the form Ex(e-λxt-∫t0 g(Xs)ds) can be reduced to evaluating a single integral of known functions. Given a drift f we determine the functions g for which the corresponding functional can be calculated by symmetry. Conversely, given g, we can determine precisely those drifts f for which the transition density and the functional may be computed by symmetry. Many examples are presented to illustrate the method. © Institute of Mathematical Statistics, 2009.
